SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 23 — Bright Computing, the leading independent provider of cluster and cloud management software, today announced an agreement with Acer to offer Bright Cluster Manager with Acer’s AW2000 F2 family of High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions. Acer customers will be able to provision, schedule, monitor and manage their clusters with Bright’s intuitive GUI or powerful Cluster Management Shell (CMSH), significantly reducing the effort required to deploy and manage powerful clusters.
“Acer’s AW2000 F2 servers are an excellent hardware solution for HPC users,” said Dave Maples, Senior Vice President of Sales for Bright Computing. “The combination of Acer servers with Bright Cluster Manager creates a powerful, compute-ready cluster that is intuitive to manage and easily extended into the cloud.”
The partnership enables Acer to deliver Bright Cluster Manager software pre-installed on Acer HPC clusters. Acer customers will benefit from improved productivity, uptime, scalability, performance and security, while reducing total cost of ownership. Purpose-built for rapid system configuration and testing, comprehensive management and system monitoring, Bright Cluster Manager makes the management of multiple, complex systems easy. Bright’s single, unified solution eliminates the need to script multiple tool-kits together as well as automates repetitive tasks, enabling administrative staff to focus on higher priority and mission critical tasks. Bright also cloud-enables Acer clusters: with just a few mouse clicks or commands, customers can extend their systems into Amazon EC2, and manage these nodes as part of their Acer clusters.
“We selected Bright to give our customers the most advanced cluster management solution available,” said Jakob Olsen, Vice President, Commercial Division, Acer EMEA. “Acer sells complete server solutions for supercomputing workloads, not individual components. The ease of use, performance and intuitive interface of Bright Cluster Manager provides an out-of-the-box solution, enabling our customers to focus on successful HPC results, not server management.”
